Havent you ever heard what noise an AEG makes when you dry fire it? They all make the same noise really...

Which is nothing like the bang from a real automatic weapon... and isn't supposed to be!

There is no bang as Koslov says, just a motor noise and a klunk.

Are you old enough to purchase replicas? The VCRA applies to these.

got to laff lads these flawed airsoft plop gums are just what you pays for ,ie cheap and nasty and i may add over powered, (i dinted a greman mess tin with one i browwed) for airsoft in the uk and so are a bit doggy to own one. sorry to pop anyone bubble but they an't right and has been said on a diffrent forum ( that way leads to the farbyside).And before anyone starts with "what do you know about it" i own not one but two of the real ones.if you got £200 to spend on a wepon buy a K98 and if you want to go bang get a fac (in jeeps case your going to have to wait a few years anyway)

I think I understood the above post to be some form of English?

Each to their own. Some people don't want a £2,000 original (which is, frankly a rip-off price), and already own a K98 or two. Maybe as a prop gun for photos and displays these StG44's are exactly what is needed. Maybe we'll start seeing less bloody MP40's?

MP40s not a problem with hopefully may see less MP3008s ( IMHO some great photos have been ruined with reenactors using these guns)

don't be so rude most of the mis-spelings are intended try reading this post a jokey comment with some very seriouse undertones ie, these airsoft mp44's are over powered and may get the owner's unwittingly into deap poo with the law.and if you want to get rid of some guns off displays start with the vast numbers of thompsons that litter most yank ones along with more jeeps than were used in the whole of ww2 :roll: :lol:

We have to remember that these aren't reenactment grade weapons, while some airsoft RIF's are just that (realistic imitation firearms) others are not so exact as they need to make alterations for motors and gearboxes, etc.
I don't think that's right that you'll get in trouble with the law just because of the power, the AGM MP44s are around 420fps from what I've read of them, which is over powered for UK sites but quite acceptable for backyard shooting, also airsoft sniper rifles are allowed to be up to 500fps at airsoft sites so there shouldn't be any problems.
If you want one of these for airsoft that's acceptable but if you want to be doing living history then this isn't the right choice because of the noticeable alterations to the design of the gun.

Tom
